ONE ISRAELI KILLED AND EIGHT INJURED IN CAR ACCIDENT IN CUBA

ONE ISRAELI KILLED AND EIGHT INJURED IN CAR ACCIDENT IN CUBA
BY LAURA SIGAL FEBRUARY 25, 2017 11:24

According to Israel Radio, the injured, all in their 60s, suffered from
minor to moderate injuries. One went though surgery overnight.

One Israeli, named as 70-year-old, Nahum Heinken from Gadera, was killed
and eight others were injured in Cuba when their mini bus flipped over,
the Foreign Ministry released Saturday morning.

According to Reshet Bet, the injured, all in their 60s, suffered from
minor to moderate injuries. One went though surgery overnight.

Israel and Cuba have no formal diplomatic ties, and Israel and relies on
the Canadian Embassy to take care of their interests in Cuba, including
helping to transfer the body to Israel, according to the Foreign Ministry.

Cuba is one of the four Latin American countries with which Israel does
not have formal diplomatic relations, along with Nicaragua, Venezuela
and Bolivia. Jerusalem had diplomatic relations with Cuba until 1973,
when Fidel Castro broke them off when he was running for president of
the Non-Aligned Movement.

Havana has since been a constant and bitter critic of Israel.

Despite the lack of formal relations, the people-to-people contacts
between the two countries have continued, especially in the health,
culture and agricultural fields. In addition, it is a destination for
Israeli tourists, Modi Ephraim, the head of the Foreign Ministry’s Latin
America and Caribbean division, said in April 2016.
